A brand new musical piece that presents multiple characters and story lines, all centered around the events of September 11, 2001. Far from being ponderously dramatic, however, the songs and scenes are whimsical, poignant, and at times outrageously funny. An ensemble cast will present characters of different ages and backgrounds, and from different parts of the country, singing from a contemporary score that is both fast paced and emotionally stirring. It will be a wonderful celebration and embrace of our common humanity which transcends the catastrophic events themselves. Originally premiering at the New York Theatre Workshop, we are pleased to present the regional premiere of this contemporary musical.  Book, music, lyrics by Matthew Osceola Webster.

Mr. and Mrs. Ernest W. Stanley are thrilled when Sheridan Whiteside, a brilliant, witty, and widely beloved radio celebrity, accepts their invitation to dinner on his tour through their little town of Mesalia, Ohio. However, when Whiteside injures himself by slipping on a piece of ice on their doorstep, and is confined to their home for the better part of December, the Stanleys are not so pleased with the change in their household. Brilliant, witty, and highly beloved he may be, but Whiteside has the behavior of a mischievous, sarcastic, entitled princeling, and he does not suffer fools. Demanding control of the entire household -- on top of the $150,000 for which he is suing Mr. Stanley -- in recompense for his injury, Whiteside commandeers the telephone, fills the library with penguins and cockroaches, and invites a band of paroled convicts over for lunch. And that's just the beginning!

The Royale
by Marco Ramirez

directed by Austene Van

Yellow Tree Theatre

February 2 – March 4
Jay ‘The Sport’ Jackson dreams of being the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world. But it’s 1905 and, in the racially segregated world of boxing, his chances are as good as knocked out. Told in six rounds and set in a boxing ring, The Royale is inspired by the often overlooked story of Jack Johnson, a boxer who quickly became the most famous black man in the world. But at the height of the Jim Crow era, victory for a black man over a white man posed untold dangers and Jay quickly finds himself fighting for more than just a title. Written by award-winning American writer Marco Ramirez (Sons of Anarchy, Orange is the New Black), Yellow Tree is thrilled to host the regional premiere of this extraordinary new play! “Original and graceful, The Royale packs a punch!”–The New York Times

Featuring: David Murray, James Craven, Santino Craven, Tamala Lacy and Charles Fraser

  • Drama

Six Elements Theatre presents a new, collaboratively devised work based on ancient Irish legends. Directed by Nathaniel Nesheim-Case, script by Brian Watson-Jones

 

The greatest warrior in Ireland's history is fighting against an invading army, alone, while the Morrigan, goddess of battle and death, looks over his shoulder, waiting for him to fall...

Adapted by the ensemble from the Old Irish epics of the Ulster Cycle, The Hound of Chulainn tells the tale of two youths touched by fate: Deirdre, cursed to bring sorrow to those she loves, and Setanta, the boy with dog-like loyalty who must choose between his duty and his family. Haunting music and deadly duels punctuate a story about the difficulty and the importance of choosing who you believe and who you fight for.

Sister Act tells the story of Deloris Van Cartier, a wannabe diva whose life takes a surprising turn when she witnesses a crime and the cops hide her away in the last place anyone would expect – a convent!  It features an all-new original '70s disco score with lush and infectious songs by 8-time Oscar-winner, Alan Menken (Beauty and the BeastThe Little MermaidLittle Shop of HorrorsNewsies).  Set around the Christmas holidays, Deloris helps her fellow sisters find their voices as she also rediscovers her own in a sparkling tribute to the universal power of friendship.

Many of the original cast members are returning to thrill and delight audiences!  Artistic Director Michael Brindisi shares, “There’s no doubt about it; this is a feel-good crowd-pleaser. They took a good movie and made it into an even better Broadway musical with a fresh, funny and fast-paced story and big glitzy musical numbers that will make people want to get up and dance.  With this astoundingly talented cast, we’re totally excited to ‘rock the rafters’ once again with this happy and uplifting show. And honestly, Sister Act is exactly what we need right now!”

  • Drama

In GROUNDED, a hotshot fighter pilot finds her career in the sky interrupted by an unplanned pregnancy. Reassigned to a “desk job,” she fights a war by day, and then returns to her family and her daughter’s pink ponies by night. As she operates drones in Afghanistan remotely from a windowless trailer outside of Las Vegas, her life in the desert begins to collide with the desert she is patrolling on the other side of the world. This compelling and searing look at moral responsibility, contradictory choices and modern warfare seamlessly blends the personal and the political as it explodes our assumptions about war, family, and the power of storytelling.
